This quilt pattern is ... ...read more

Counting Fish: Quiet Book Page Tutorial

20 Jun 2014


I have fish on my mind! I am working furiously creating tutorials for my Pretty Fish, Ribbon Jellyfish, and Hazel the Whale, who made their debut at Pittsburgh Quilt Market.

Adding on an abacus is fun and easy to learn, and encourages mental math skills. Even if you don't use this page as an abacus, it will be fabulous for helping a child develop fine motor skills.
